After the Justin Roiland controversy, will High On Life be removed from Xbox Game Pass? ...

Justin Roiland, the co-founder of Rick and Morty and the voice of the titular characters, has been withdrawn from the program after being charged with domestic abuse, thus High on Life players fear the popular game may be removed from the Xbox Game Pass as well, since Roiland co-founded Squanch Games.

High On Life was the largest Xbox Game Pass release in 2022, and it had the third largest launch in its history, so its removal would be a major setback.

Microsoft has yet to state anything indicating that something might happen. Plus, since Roiland has resigned and ceased all involvement while he awaits trial—in which he's pleading not guilty—there appears to be no reason for Microsoft to remove it from Game Pass.

High on Life might be removed from the Game Pass as long as it's been on there for a while. It's a part of how the catalog works.

Because it is a new release, it's likely to be a year or two before it happens again. It's also possible that it's in Microsoft's best interests to keep it there.

The possibility of it being canceled because of the charges against co-creator Roiland seems unlikely in any case—even less so if he is found not guilty. So, Xbox Game Pass users who play High on Life can be rest assured that there will be no impact on their ability to play the game.
